Dear users, N-Body will be released at 4 pm EST today. Features of this release include an improved dwarf galaxy model and new data representation features. Post here with issues. As this is likely my last release on this project (due to my move to England for graduate school), I would like to thank all of you for helping me do great science during my time affiliated with Dr. Newberg's group. I will still be active in the community, but I am proud to hand my role in the project off to Sidd. I look forward to a continued relationship with the BOINC community in the future. Cheers, Jake Bauer

Hi everyone, this is a brief news for now, it will be expanded later. Today, the ESA Rosetta mission will approach its destination at Comet 67P/Churyumov–Gerasimenko. It is an extraordinaire achievement and we want to celebrate this is a special way. We thought, it would be great to have all of us somehow related to this event, so we made you calculate the dust streams of Churyumov–Gerasimenko during the last runs of our Comet Trails app and animate it. Here you go... click the image for the youtube video

Friends.... Another Boinc project has come aboard to help us fundraise for Milkyway. Bitcoin Utopia has agreed to team up with us on fundraising for Milkyway's future. To take part in this type of assistance for our project, please go to their site and follow their procedures. Their program for Milkyway is Campaign #3. We truly appreciate their support! Disclaimer: The Milkyway project staff, students and moderators are not responsible for any issues your computer may have with their WU's. Please follow their recommendations for optimal results (credits are pretty nice too!). Any concerns or questions over how their project raises funds should be posted on their website for their admins to assist. The Admins of Bitcoin Utopia are fantastic people and my experience shows they will do whatever they can to assist you. Also remember Bitcoin Mining is not a quick process so the Bitcoin Utopia folks and us want to remind you to still donate in the more direct manner if you wish to. Any support is appreciated tremendously!
